Nothing quite hits the spot like an universally beloved classic Italian recipe like Pizza. I'd like to introduce you to the Calzone, an offspring of our much-adored Pizza family, and I think you'll grow to be as fond of (if not more) Cousin Calzone as you already are of traditional Italian pizza.

Growing up, we had pizza at least once a week to satisfy our cravings for delicious Italian food that could also fall into the comfort food zone just as easily as being a gourmet snack.

And when the calzone was carefully placed in front of me, cutting it open and releasing that gorgeous steam is a food-based memory I hope to keep with me for a long time - family dinners around your own table can be so enriched with this different Pizza approach.

To keep things approachable and quick, try starting off with a classic Italian pizza combo of boiled ham, Prosciutto Cotto, with fresh mozzarella cheese slices.

Are you a tomato lover? Toss in a thin layer of basil-accented fresh tomato sauce before adding your ham and cheese, and easily take up the Calzone recipe just a few notches on the flavor spectrum. If putting a healthy, fresh pizza recipe on the table for your friends and loved ones, and enjoying your time together over superb Italian dishes is a favorite activty, this authentic Calzone recipe is just what you need to make those Pizza nights unmissable!

Make the Calzone

Preheat oven at 220C.
Place several shreds of mozzarella and ham slices in the middle of your rounded dough shape. 
Add a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.  Close the rounded shape, leaving the ham and cheese in the middle. 
Fold the dough in half, one side over the other, and seal the edges well, pressing down with either a fork or simply sealing the borders using pressure from your fingers.
Drizzle with another pour of olive oil, and bake until golden brown (about 15-20 minutes).
